Moving Along…New Blog!

20 Jan

Well, after lots of thought, I decided to try my luck using Blogger. I really wanted to move this entire blog over to Blogger, but alas, WordPress doesn’t want you to do that, so they make it too difficult! haha :) I will still be using this blog to give updates on life from time to time, but ultimately, I plan to focus on my new blog. My direction has changed quite a bit since I started blogging, and I’m much more interested in writing about fashion, fitness, and hopefully travel in the near future! :) I hope to see all of your faces at my new blog! Thanks so much :)

1. Holiday Party Fashion

1 Dec

I think we all find ourselves attending multiple holiday parties during the weeks leading up to Christmas Day, and with all those events, we all need something pretty to wear! I am such a shopper, and I probably spend WAY more money than I should! I think we all need a new dress (or two…or three…) to wear to all of these parties we’ll be going to in December! ;) Here are some holiday outfit ideas, mainly for a “cocktail party”:

AE Sweetheart Party Dress $49.50

Metallic Bow Wallet/Clutch $9.50

Michael Antonia Lloyd Gold Glitter Pumps $64


Michael Kors “Pressley” Pumps $98           NY&Co Bracelet $16.95                  Gianni Bini “Dawn” Dress $138

Ruffle Flower Strapless Dress $69.96                                        GUESS Holbrook Sandal $99


These are just some (of many!) ideas involving cocktail party attire. I like to take outfit ideas and then try to find them at a less expensive store (i.e. Forever 21, H&M, Charlotte Russe, etc.). Which means you don’t have to pay hundreds of dollars on dresses/shoes/accessories you might only wear once :) Occasionally, I even find designer clothing on sale for a really good deal and in those cases, I say, go for the real thing! ;)




Shop Til I Drop

27 Nov

I’ve become quite the shopper lately. I LOVE shopping, and I used to shop pretty much every weekend when I was in high school…however, I also bought cheaper clothes back then! Lately, though, I’ve found myself shopping more frequently than I have in a while…and buying expensive, name-brand items. On sale, of course. I keep thinking about how I would love to work in the fashion industry…even though I’m in law school and will obviously end up with a more structured and probably less exciting job…haha. At least it will probably pay better…which is good, considering my shopping habits! ;)

Even though I’ve been spending (way too much) money, I’ve managed to find some great deals:

Rock and Republic Berlin Skinny Jeans from bluefly.com…originally $228, I paid $86. Unfortunately, the sale isn’t quite as good as it was when I bought them…I think they’re currently $115.

Walter by Walter Baker Sequin Top in Gunmetal…originally $228, I paid $39 (total, including shipping) from beyondtherack.com. I check a list of designer sale websites daily, and I had been looking for a racerback sequin tank for a while, so I was glad I found this one. It ended up being cheaper than similar tops in NY&Co. and Express…and (hopefully) is better quality!

And the best for last: I FINALLY got my Garmin Forerunner 405! I found it on Amazon.com for $194…which I think is a steal, considering the suggested retail price of over $300. I’ve been wanting a 405 for a while now (since I’ve been relying on Nike+ for WAY too long!), and I decided to go ahead and buy instead of waiting for Christmas in case it wasn’t on sale then.

So I spent quite a bit of money in the past week…but if nothing else, at least I found some great deals on things that I have been on the lookout for! Has anyone else found any great deals lately? Any Black Friday deals?!


Things I Love About Fall…

29 Sep
  • The leaves as they change from green to all shades of orange, yellow, and red…
  • Nonfat Pumpkin Spice Lattes…I get the sense that PSLs are everyone’s favorite thing about Fall ;)
  • FOOTBALL…need I say more?!
  • Cool weather…which I’m currently still waiting for!
  • Pumpkins and other Fall decor
  • Going to the mountains to pick apples at my favorite orchard: Check it out!
  • Fall fashion…in LOVE with sweaters and boots and cute jackets and scarves. Ah.
  • The smell of peanuts being picked
  • Peanut Fest…if you don’t know what this is, you’re missing out ;)
  • Fall is also the unofficial start of race season for all of us runners out there! I am so excited…kicking it off with a Halloween 10k at the Oceanfront. Maybe I’ll actually dress up this time?!
  • Halloween
  • Thanksgiving…pretty much my favorite holiday…minus Christmas, of course :)
  • …And what’s Thanksgiving without: The MACY’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Truly, the best part about Fall is that I get to spend lots of quality time with family & friends and stay busy busy busy…until after Christmas, pretty much. If there’s one thing I thrive on, its being BUSY. haha. And as I just learned a few days ago when I was writing on my calendar, I have absolutely NO free weekends between now and after New Years! Crazy…but I like it! I hope everyone is finding their Fall to be very eventful…even though I’m sure we’re ALL busy, try to stop and take it all in…enjoy the moment ;)
